Re: Been here a year !!! is a trip home this year too soon?

If you can afford it go, if you can't don't.

But remember, when you get there it will probably be a bit of an anticlimax. I know when I go back I already know most the news thanks to Skype,...

Re: What is the point of Ebay Australia?

Ebay Australia is fine, I get stuff from there now and again and the UK site. That said, getting more impressed with Gumtree for buying stuff locally.

Re: Stamps

Re: Best comprehensive car insurance

I get on well with AAMI. They do not seem to quibble over claims, and I've had a few. Price might not be the cheapest but I'm happy to go with them. I believe for new cars they now do a 2 year...

Re: Advise needed with regards confidentiality breach at sons school?

Seems a bit of overkill for something that has already happened and in the scheme of things is rather unimportant. Personally, I'd have just had a word in the secretary's ear to have got her view...

Re: 2 speed economy

Just how much do we need to spend on education? I'd have thought the $16 billion spent as part of the stimulus plan would have been enough to keep education going for a bit.

Re: diesel or petrol?

+1

And I'd disagree with the poster who says diesel is dirty. Maybe 20 years ago, but not with the modern converters. Diesel engines also last longer that petrol, another aspect to go into the...

Re: Banking advice

I'd be interested to compared the exchange rate on this. Is the one used by HSBC on a Premier account published anywhere? I have a standard HSBC business account and OzForex beats them hands down.
